Not even worth a free entry. - The rudest service on earth. The drinks might be okay, but the quality don’t live up to the overrated prices. Don’t go here, unless you want to waste your money away on terrible service, and bad drinks.

Staff were friendly, meals were cheap. Free drinks too. Great music. Games at the booths which were fun. I suggest to arrive early to avoid lines and entry fee. We arrived at 730 for dinner & then stayed on.

Exactly like other reviews (so this place has form), I was asked to 'come this way' by two bouncers before being thrown out for 'showing signs of intoxication'. I had had two drinks and was very clearly not drunk, which was lucky, as being outside...More
